A message for 'A' Level candidates who feel like giving up
« on: October 29, 2019, 08:59:06 am »

I'm attempting the 'A' Levels a second time yet the struggles faced remain very real. Many of us whilst going through such a difficult period might constantly encounter thoughts and voices in our head striving their darndest to deflate spirits: "Oh, maybe I should give up", "Oh, maybe I'm not good enough" etc. - admittedly these still swirl in my consciousness despite me doing battle once more, then again I reckon it's only normal to have them.

That said, it is how you respond in the face of such self-defeating thoughts that matters. Last year, I bought into that BS and believed wholeheartedly that I was not capable enough to do well for the 'A' Levels, hence granting myself a perfect excuse to deliver much lesser than my true potential... eventually I gave up on myself in the lead-up to the exams and regretted it immensely thereafter.
